    Two Serious Ladies by Jane Bowles This novel is about two women who break from their traditional lives. Faderman discusses the protests in the s; the counter reaction of the s and early eighties; the decimated but united community during the AIDS epidemic; and the current hurdles for the right to marriage equality. During the war, American society saw a shift in traditional gender roles in the public and private spheres, with women taking on traditionally male jobs outside of the home in unprecedented numbers, both in the military and on the home front. The characters in this novel were based on real people. Hats off to Fordham University Press who republished this novel in Author Christopher Isherwood was well traveled and lived in Berlin during the s.

    Unlike many gay novels from the early decades of the 20th century, Maurice is now widely available and frequently read. After the war when women were encouraged to return to civilian life and resume traditional gender roles, those unmarried women who chose to remain in the military or who enlisted during peacetime increasingly stood out as members of a deviant group that was easily stereotyped as lesbian and increasingly subjected to dishonorable discharge proceedings. This created an urban environment that allowed a gay and lesbian subculture to flourish. Based on the reality that queer Indigenous people experience multilayered oppression that profoundly impacts our safety, health, and survival, this book is at once an imagining and an invitation to the reader to join in the discussion of decolonizing queer Indigenous research and theory, and by doing so, to partake in allied resistance working toward positive change.

    The contributors consider representations of the black queer body, black queer literature, the pedagogical implications of black queer studies, and the ways that gender and sexuality have been glossed over in black studies and race and class marginalized in queer studies. Whether exploring the closet as a racially loaded metaphor, arguing for the inclusion of diaspora studies in black queer studies, considering how the black lesbian voice that was so expressive in the s and s is all but inaudible today, or investigating how the social sciences have solidified racial and sexual exclusionary practices, these insightful essays signal an important and necessary expansion of queer studies. InGore Vidal's The City and the Pillar became the first openly gay novel written by a renowned author and published by a well-known publisher. Happiness is its keynote.

I hope that an example of how it happened before, will make it easier to recognize it when it happens again. The Romantic movement gaining momentum at the end of the 18th century allowed men to "express deep affection for each other", and the motif of ancient Greece as "a utopia of male-male love" was an acceptable vehicle to reflect this, but some of Duke August's contemporaries felt that his characters "stepped over the bounds of manly affection into unseemly eroticism.

Retracing the evolution of sexology, and revisiting modern epistemological categories of sexuality in psychoanalysis, gay liberation, social constructionism, queer theory, biology, and human genetics, Angelides argues that bisexuality has historically functioned as the structural other to sexual identity itself, undermining assumptions about heterosexuality and homosexuality.

Is gender in the head or in the body?
